Soil Health Unit

Soil Health Unit

By helping to understand how different soil properties influence the development and spread of pests and diseases, we are helping farmers and the industry to develop more effective soil-management strategies to mitigate the risks. This will also help crop-protection companies to develop more effective control products, based on a greater understanding of pesticide behaviour in different types of soil.

  • Improve soil-management practices to combat crop pests and diseases.
  • Understand pesticide behaviour in different soil conditions.
  • Develop more effective control measures for different soil types.
